VIDEO: Student Punished for Patriotic ‘Support Our Troops’ T-Shirt

Guest Post by Mara Zebest

What is it about T-shirts that drive the Left nuts? There should be an official syndrome named for this problem. PTDS [Patriotic T-Shirt Derangement Syndrome] strikes again aimed at a 12-year old student of Fort Campbell Middle School who was told her “Support Our Troops” T-shirt violated dress code.

Fox News Insider reports the following:

The 12-year-old daughter of a U.S. soldier deployed overseas was reportedly sent home from school by administrators for violating the dress code. Cejai Taylor wore a red t-shirt to honor her father, Sgt. James Taylor, and other service members. It was part of a “red shirt day” campaign that she hoped to start at the school.

But administrators reportedly objected because the shirt did not have a collar, though they are taking another look at their policy.

And here’s the kicker. This all happened at Mahaffey Middle School, which is located on Fort Campbell Army Base in Kentucky.
